Ohio River Fishing

Indiana River Fishing


Jefferson Proving Grounds North has a gorgeous 180-acre freshwater catfish and bass Ohio River fishing lake. This Indiana river fishing experience comes with endless standing timber, numerous coves and points making great cover for excellent fishing. Old Timbers Lake is well known as being one of the best lakes in the state, for producing very large bass, bluegill, crappie, record sauger and channel catfish. The Ohio River, only a few minutes’ drive from the Proving Grounds, offers a vast opportunity for numerous fish species, including striper bass, largemouth bass, enormous catfish and sauger.  While there are some similarities in the types of fishing there are very distinct differences in river fishing verses Lake fishing due to the different species of fish, currents, and changing water levels which also create a more challenging experience. Also bow fishing from a custom airboat on the Ohio at night is always an exciting adventure. In addition, at the Presnell Plantation, we offer 10 fully stocked lakes stocked with Bluegill, Crappie, Redear, Sauger, Largemouth Bass and Catfish.
